A 2011 graphic novel similar to 'Yesterday's film plot has been released digitally for free.

If you don't know much about 'Yesterday' film, it's about a man who wakes up one day to discover that the Beatles have been removed from all history and decided to use it to advance his music career.

One of the book's creators, David Blot explained, "In 2010, I wrote the script of the graphic novel Yesterday, the first part of 'The Adventures of John Duval & The Futurians', drawn by French artist Jérémie Royer".

"Yesterday tells the weird story of John Duval, a French New Yorker in his twenties who accidentally goes back through time and wakes up in 1960. ... In order to impress his girlfriend Eli, he records early Beatles hits like 'Yesterday' before the Beatles ever wrote them! John Duval becomes the biggest pop star of all time. And the Beatles? Shhh ... that would be spoiling! But I can promise all you Beatles, comic books and music lovers, that this first volume ends on quite a shocking cliffhanger."

You can download the graphic novel here.

Blot also added that he would've published a second volume if the publishing house did not shut down. He still hopes for another company to purchase the rights to the full story.

'Yesterday' film is currently screening in NZ cinemas.
